“100-Year Flood”

We are currently experiencing what is being referred to as the “100 year flood” here in the middle of the United States – involving several states, homes, entire communities and businesses along the Missouri River.   Our Methodist Health System  posted information for our employees – expected to affect 500+ of our staff in the coming weeks.    Numerous resources have been posted by our employer to assist in coping with safety,  evacuation,  and living for the coming weeks/months.      Flooding waters pose many risks

There are numerous links to recent articles, at the end of this post, covering more details of effects of the flooding.     Here are additional links to resources for those in direct need of assistance.     Please forward this information as needed.

Because pets are part of many families affected by flooding I have included the following information on  preparing your cats for disaster.     The information is applicable to all pets. http://cats.about.com/cs/disaster/a/prepareagainst_2.htm.    The article contains two parts.

  • Have a plan
  • Identify your cat (pet)

Here are links to several local TV stations for the latest news.
